That no doubt explains why creator Vince Gilligan has resisted bringing back Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, especially as them showing up wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense.
However, if and when he changes his mind, Bryan Cranston is more than willing to reprise the role based on comments made in an interview on The Rich Eisen Show “I owe Vince Gilligan so much. He was my champion to get [the Walter White] role. I was the guy coming off Malcolm in the Middle. If they were to call me and say, ‘We have this idea, we’d like … ,’ I would say, ‘Yes, you don’t have to finish the pitch. I’m there, what do you want me to do?’”
“I know how careful they are and proprietary they are with those characters and those storylines, and it wouldn’t be something, ‘Oh, isn’t that kind of a stunt casting kind of thing.’ It would be something kind of unique and obscure and creative, and I’m all in.”
If a return for Walt can match the specifications listed by Cranston, then it really could be something special. We’ll just have to wait and see when Better Call Saul returns for a third season next year, but for now, Saul’s story is more than compelling enough without Walt.
